In honor of my father’s birthday, I’m sharing this old photo of him, intent on his script. I love this quote from the end of his memoir, “Any Way I Can; 50 Years in Show Business”:“So how did I get caught up in writing? I look at it this way. In any given script, I get to play all the parts. The whole cast. Every line. Out loud. It’s a way for me to tell if it works. The joy of writing has always been in the first draft, just yourself and the characters on the page…I have to say that, for me, it’s an addiction and I have no plans to stop.”His addiction was a joy and an inspiration to me and so many others. So happy he was my father. ❤️#johngay #writerinspiration #bearmanormedia #writerslife #hollywoodscript #memoir #lovemyfather #writerslifeforme ... See MoreSee Less

Drove out to beautiful Anza-Borrego Desert State Park last week to see the wildflower bloom. We visited Henderson Canyon-a sandy, enormous field of vibrant purple, yellow, and white flowers! More expected to bloom this spring, if you get the urge to travel. A gorgeous, inspiring day!#anzaborrego #daytrip #desertbloom #wildflowerbloom #hendersoncanyon #springday #writersinspiration #desertmagic #desertbeauty ... See MoreSee Less

The other day, a college counselor shared with me so many stories of kids in high school struggling with anxiety and depression. Boy, could I relate, especially knowing spring’s academic challenges! It seemed that pressure always ramped up in the spring for my kid with ADHD from teachers or school officials to meet the demands of passing a grade, graduating, or going to college.For those parents who are facing this challenge, here’s a blog I wrote for ADDitude magazine, back when Lee was in high school. Coming face to face with reality, I accept that my child’s mental health is more important than my dreams for her future.www.additudemag.com/my-daughters-mental-health-is-more-important-than-my-dreams-for-her-future/ ...
